We are planning to visit Cape Town and the peninsula for 7 nights next April. We are two women and would appreciate some advice on how safe places are as a base, in order for us to work out the most suitable location for accommodation.
Initially we were thinking of a city centre apartment in Cape Town, but it was suggested to us that Camps Bay might be better. We looked into it but found it a bit expensive. We have found a more affordable apartment next to the beach in Hout Bay, so wondered if anyone could tell us if this is more or less safe than staying in Cape Town? We would appreciate advice on e.g. whether it is safe to walk to restaurants in the evening.
